As a Preschool Teacher and experienced ECE, Chloe has been working alongside children and families for several years, with a focus on supporting preschool-aged, neurodivergent children. Chloe developed her practice around the importance of inclusivity and supporting children in developing empathy, flexible thinking, and patience. While placing high value on learning through play, Chloe creates a child-lead classroom environment where children feel valued and confident as respected members of their community.
In the preschool classroom, Anthea is most excited to nurture young learners and share her knowledge of strategies used to support the unique needs of all children.
